Take the wheel with a career as a truck driver

Delivery and tractor-trailer truck drivers are a key component of our economy, transporting goods and freight from one location to another and facilitating supply lines across the country. These days, with virtual storefronts and online shopping making it easier than ever for consumers to find what they’re looking for, the need for trained, certified truck drivers to move all of these goods is higher than ever. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the heavy and tractor-trailer truck driving field is expected to have over 90,000 new jobs through 2031, and ASC Technical Institute is here to help ready you to take advantage of this growing industry.

The trucking industry is what keeps our economy going, and you can be a vital part of it.
